It’s only a few weeks until Christmas, yes, I know, but we all need to start thinking about those all-important gifts. I, for one, am not a last-minute shopper and I’m sure there are plenty of you out there who like to be organised, the same as me. I’ve decided to concentration on Christmas Gifts for adults who travel in this post. Adults can be hard to buy for, especially those who travel quite often. So, I’ve tried to find some that will fit in with both their time away and their time at home.
Here are a collection of some gifts, ideal for adults who travel. From recycled toiletries bags, to bamboo pyjamas, most of the gifts I’ve picked are either environmentally-friendly, eco-concious or are designed for zero-waste, plastic-free living.

1 Star Trek Discovery DVD Boxset: Amazon, £21.99.
Ok, so I know this is travel of a different kind but it still all about travel, discovery and adventure. It can be enjoyed at home before a forthcoming trip, or even on the road using a portable DVD player. Either way, if you’ve a Star Trek fan in your family, or someone who has a fascination with space exploration, this is the DVD for them.
2 GoPro Hero 7 in White: Amazon, £179.00.
Although we own a GoPro Hero camera, I’m ashamed to say it is in storage and I haven’t used it for a few years. That said, the GoPro is the perfect little camera for both stills and action videos. I know so many bloggers who use this as their primary camera, and many use it in conjunction with drones for those really adventurous, overhead, panoramic shots. It’s lightweight, extremely portable, waterproof (great if you want to take it snorkelling) and its price tag isn’t outrageous. So, if you’re struggling to know what to get that person in your life who loves a bit of adventurous travel, why not get them the latest GoPro Camera.
3 Recycled Firehose Toiletries Bag: Protect the Planet, £52.49.
I just love this idea, using an old firehose to great a versatile toiletries bag that can be used for just about anything. From toiletries, to pencils and crayons, cosmetics and even cables, this handy bag made from recycled firehoses is a brilliant gift for those who travel regularly. Protect the Planet is the leading retailer of upcycled & eco-friendly giftware. They stock eco-friendly brands and have a huge range of products for eco-concious buyers.
4 Ocean Conservation Bracelet: Meraki Bracelet, 25USD.
These lovely bracelets have 9 element beads and one smiley bead with the element beads collected from all around the world, so you have a piece from every part of the world around your wrist. For every bracelet bought, a donation is made to the Marine Megafauna Foundation. The MMF conducts pioneering research on marine megafauna and uses scientific evidence to educate the public and governments to influence long-standing conservation strategies. Any company that supports the conservation of marine life is worth supporting, so why not buy a bracelet as a gift and support the MMF.
5 100% Bamboo Short Pyjamas: Nightire, £54.
These beautiful 100% bamboo pyjamas are the perfect gift for a lady who travels a lot. These soft, durable, moisture-wicking pyjamas are stylish and help regulate body temperature while you sleep. Bamboo is not only moisture wicking, it is also antibacterial, non-irritating and it is environmentally friendly. These lightweight pyjamas are perfect for packing in those suitcase and there is also a long-sleeved, long-leg version too.
6 Canon Powershot G7X Mark ii: Amazon, £479.99.
This camera has been my go-to travel camera for over two years now. With a boisterous young boy on my hands, I don’t have time to be faffing with a heavy DSLR camera. I also wanted something that was capable of filming should I want to out together videos of our days out. So, on the recommendation of my fellow bloggers I bought a G7X and never looked back. While it’s not the lightest camera nor the cheapest, it has the full capabilities of a DSLR but is much more portable than a bigger professional camera. It hasn’t let me down yet. If a Mark iii should be released, it’ll be on my Christmas wish-list.
7 All-purpose cotton drawstring bags: Chalk & Moss, from £4.30 for small up to £6.50 for large.
These cotton, all-purpose drawstring bags are perfect for those who travel. Available in three different sizes and three colours, you’ll find one to suit your own personal style. They can act as grocery bags, laundry bags and can even be used as a camera bag. Not only are these bags multi-functional, they can help with zero waste living. They are the best alternative to plastic bags and Chalk & Moss have many more items that can help with zero waste and plastic-free living.
8 Kampot Salt and Pepper Seasoning Kit: BoTree, £99.00.
Ok, this might not necessarily be for taking with you travelling, but if you’re anything like me you love a homecooked meal after your jollies. And this salt and pepper seasoning kit could be the perfect addition to your kitchen for those back-home meals. With a beautiful cast iron salt pot and pepper mill, plus some BoTree Salt and Peppers, you’re bound to rustle up an amazing meal.
So, there you have it. A small collection of some unique Christmas gift ideas that are ideal for the travelling adult in your life. Some are even environmentally-friendly and help towards eco-living.
